Socionext and Primax Collaborate on Advanced Imaging Solutions
Langen/Germany, 6. June, 2018 --- Socionext Inc., a leading provider of SoC-based imaging solutions, collaborated with Primax Electronics Ltd. and developed the world’s smallest and thinnest 360-degree camera module that features Socionext’s Milbeaut® series of image signal processor.
Socionext will exhibit its latest camera modules and other advanced imaging solutions to demonstrate the collaborative synergy with Primax at the annual Computex Taipei 2018, June 5 to 8.
The latest offering from the collaboration is the new 360-degree camera module. Measuring at 41.5mm x 16.5mm and only 3.7mm thick, it is currently the world’s smallest and thinnest complete camera module for a 360-degree camera, made possible by Primax’s design and manufacturing excellence. The module features Socionext’s MBG967 processor, which supports dual camera inputs. Ideally suited as an attachment for smartphones and other mobile devices, this camera module will contribute to the range of photographic possibilities within the mobile environment.
Another achievement of the successful collaboration of Socionext and Primax is ORBI prime, the first 360-degree video recording eyewear. ORBI prime incorporates the Milbeaut SC2000, which delivers exceptionally high image quality and low power consumption. The processor can handle up to four camera inputs and provide outstanding image stitching technology with only a single chip, making it ideal for applications such as action and wearable cameras.
“Socionext and Primax have been working very closely to develop the best solutions for camera applications,” said Mitsugu Naito, Corporate Senior Vice President of Socionext. “Leveraging outstanding image processing capabilities of Milbeaut and the Primax’s engineering expertise in product miniaturization and advanced module solutions, we will continue to deliver innovative and advanced solutions for customers worldwide.”
